On January 29, 2014, HUA rescued 45 dogs from a puppy mill in South Dakota. Some of the dogs went to other groups and the majority of them (about 30) came to HUA. HUA has been working with this particular mill on downsizing and we are pleased to announce that this mill is now shut down!
Because of these collaborative efforts, another 45 dogs are now free. Of the group, only 3 of them are males. All others are females. Puppies were also released. A few three-month-old Japanese Chin pups and four six-week-old pups are in the group. What does all this mean? Female dogs are not needed at the mill for breeding because puppies aren't selling. Efforts in educating the public are working and we must continue to let people know about puppy mills and their connection to pet stores, newspaper ads, internet ads, etc.
Rollie is one of our Dakota Darling Schnauzers. He is a darling little guy, still a little shy but not scared anymore. His beautiful eyes bare his soul. He watches a lot, absorbing his new surroundings and looking amazed at all the fun that is going on. He likes his two Schnauzer roommates and the three of them snuggle up in the most adorable piles. Rollie will quickly capture the hearts of his new family members and he will blossom into a very happy little guy with lots of attention and a little understanding.
